We moved to this complex back in '03 from living in a very nice neighborhood and in a very beautiful home, to say the least I was devastated and embarrassed. From 2003-2008 the apartments were a complete disaster because of the management, one particular problem was documents and money was always ""lost,"" nothing ever got fixed, it was horrible. The new management company came on board around May or June 2009 and things have gotten a lot better for the most part, the place still has its problems but it isn't too bad and for the most part the maintenance is responsive! That's a huge turnaround for this place. Like I stated before in the ""cons,"" the place seriously needs renovations - painting, wiring, etc and one really stupid feature of the buildings -- top floor patios have no coverings! It's a bitch in the summer.
There were two episodes of gun shots in the early morning a few months back but has since been resolved, the complex didn't take it lightly which was nice.
So yes, this place is definitely livable. I plan on sticking it out for another 6m-1y and I would recommend this place to a friend if they needed a new place.
Pros: Spacious apartments, Fairly priced rent, Friendly staff
Cons: In need of serious renovations, Parking, No patio covers?
